The program uses two files with a fixed name.
Example for XDSCONV.INP for conversion to CNS format
Assume that three data sets, named fae-ip.ahkl, fae-pk.ahkl, and fae-rm.ahkl
(see Example 1 for XSCALE.INP), are available from a selenomethionyl protein
crystal at different wavelengths and that you want to carry out the
subsequent structure analysis by the CNS package.
For conversion to CNS format you make a separate run of XDSCONV for each of the three XSCALE files. The input parameter values for XDSCONV.INP are shown below for the conversion fae-ip.ahkl --> fae-ip.cv . Only the first two lines specifying input and output files are mandatory. By default, all reflections are accepted from the input file, test reflections are not generated, and remaining parameters needed are taken from the header of the input file.
OUTPUT_FILE=fae-ip.cv CNS INPUT_FILE=fae-ip.ahkl !format is XDS_ASCII by default !<<<<<<<<<<<< Specifications below could have been omitted >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> INCLUDE_RESOLUTION_RANGE=20 1.6 SPACE_GROUP_NUMBER=19 UNIT_CELL_CONSTANTS=65.46 108.41 113.15 90.000 90.000 90.000 FRIEDEL'S_LAW=FALSE !TRUE !This creates new test-reflections from a fraction of the input reflections !GENERATE_FRACTION_OF_TEST_REFLECTIONS=0.05
In a similar way the other two data sets, fae-pk.cv and fae-rm.cv, are obtained by running XDSCONV after the appropriate changes to XDSCONV.INP have been made. The converted files fae-ip.cv, fae-pk.cv, and fae-rm.cv may then be used directly for input to CNS (CNS input file "merge.inp").
